What is a Control Network Installation?

Control Network Installation - Tri Tech Surveys

A control network installation is a system of survey control points and benchmarks established on a construction site to provide a common reference system for all surveying and construction activities. The control network provides a reliable and accurate framework for surveying, mapping, and construction, ensuring that all activities are aligned and consistent with each other.

The control network installation typically involves the following steps:

  1. Survey preparation: The first step in establishing a control network is to survey the construction site and identify suitable locations for the control points and benchmarks.
  2. Control point installation: Control points are established using surveying equipment, such as total stations or GPS receivers, and are typically marked with metal or concrete monuments. The control points are used as reference points for all subsequent surveying and construction activities.
  3. Network adjustment: Once the control points and benchmarks have been established, the control network is adjusted to ensure that it provides an accurate and consistent reference system for all surveying and construction activities.
  4. Maintenance: The control network must be regularly monitored and maintained to ensure that it continues to provide an accurate and reliable reference system.

The control network installation is a critical component of construction projects, as it provides a consistent and accurate reference system for all surveying and construction activities, ensuring that the project is executed according to the design specifications and building regulations.
